i am currently on wellbutrin 300mg a day. it doesn't seem to be working that well. i've been through most ssri meds, and they only work for about
6 months and just make me fat. so, my doc has recommended i try lamictal and i've been staring at the starter box for a week trying to make up my mind.
i'm worried about the rash but if it starts i'll just stop taking the meds. i've been told that weight gain is not a side effect of lamictal but then again i was told the same thing about ssri meds and i gained about 60 pounds on them. i'm concerned about 'flattening'. but, after spending yet another beautiful day on my couch sleeping most of the day because i just can't seem to get myself to move, i feel like i have no other choice but to try lamictal.
i suppose my biggest concern is having side effects so bad (other than the bad rash) that i can't function at work. i live alone and don't really have anyone to look after me if necessary, so becoming incapacitated is not an option.
anyway, i guess i'm just glad i have someplace i can post this rant and know that there's folks out there who understand what i'm going through. any words of support are welcome - or words of warning even. i'm just tired of doing all this alone.
